How do I apply?

You can apply for halls of residence here.

To be able to complete the above application process you must be holding an unconditional firm or conditional firm offer (UF or CF) at the university. You will not be able to progress with your application without it.​

Once you've completed the two step verification process you can complete your application form. Part of this involves selecting your top 3 preferred halls.

Please note that we cannot guarantee matching your preferred Halls but we will allocate as closely as possible. We allocate rooms based on the date we receive your application so the earlier you apply the better chance you will have of getting one of your preferred choices.

If you have any problems completing the halls application process, please see our halls application troubleshooting document.

When do I get confirmation if I’ve been allocated a room?

If successful, instructions about accepting your room offer will be emailed to the email address you registered with UCAS at the time of application from Spring 2018. This will include instructions on completing the room acceptance process via our Halls Portal. Here you will be given details of your room, dates of occupancy, rent and the full terms and conditions.

You will also need to make a payment of £200 at this time along with setting up a direct debit for rent payment within seven days of receiving your room offer. If you accept an offer of a place in residence, you will be signing a legally-binding contract for the full period stated on the offer letter.

Terms and conditions of living in halls of residence

For many reasons, including the health and safety of all student residents, there are a number of terms and conditions you agree to when accepting a place in residence. You can find a copy of these during the room offer acceptance process. Please note all halls are non-smoking and no halls students are permitted to bring vehicles.
